My excitement quickly faded to disappointment, and then downright anger. Another orange product!!!!
First of all, they make two shades of this, but this one is 01. 02 is called Natural, and from what I've seen that one would definitely suit me more. So the saleslady thought (understandably) that 01 was lighter, and just put it in my bag without me even looking too much at it. Then they staple the bag right away so I have no recourse once I walk out the store. But why do I have to be stuck with this!!!! It doesn't blend in, it just stays orange the whole time.
Other than that, it has a really creamy texture, and it isn't completely matte, but it doesn't do much for coverage. It has a really bad smell, but it didn't linger too long. I don't know if I'll try the other one but it'll have to be when I calm down from this one. I am part of the universe, and this isn't suitable for me, so please don't call it universal!!!
Correction: Essence has three shades, 03 is medium.
